ANGELES CITY – Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. has ordered the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) to stop the issuance of Environmental Compliance Clearance (ECC) to businesses.
Mayor Lazatin has issued Memorandum No. 47 effectively suspending the issuance of ECC.
The ECC is one of the requirements from traders in getting the Mayor’s Permit.
“The suspension shall be until such time that the process of issuance of such requirement shall have been recalibrated in such a manner that it both satisfies national and local environmental laws, rules, and regulations and serves most of all the best interest of taxpayers,” the Memorandum stated.
